Re: Continuum

The number of points on a line must be bigger than Lambda What is Lambda? Is this what you were earlier calling Li, and what Cantor called Ω? otherwise we are dealing with a contradiction: Consider a line of length X. Consider that the largest integer number also exist, so-called Lambda. No largest...

How does Cantor's idea of the absolute infinite, which he thought was God, bear on the discussion of points on a line?

Re: Continuum

To identify each point as a number is to equivocate 0 to 1 given the point is absent of any qualities. If you prefer, each point is identical and we associate it with the number that is the location of the point. So there is a point at 2, and a point at pi, and a point at 47, and so forth. You are ...

Re: Continuum

I should have said that consider that a line exists and is made of points. Euclid said that 2300 years ago; and contemporary mathematics regards the real line as made of points, each point identified by a real number. So we know this. Li according to matematician exists. They call it absoulte inste...

Re: Continuum

= Wow. You are going to make half of the world's philosophers' heads explode. All their lives they've been certain that a negative cannot be proved and along you come and assert, "the biggest integer does not exist?" If you can prove the biggest integer does not exist you will have proved all those...

Re: Continuum

ps -- I don't mean to sound critical. Let me tell you where I'm coming from. I studied some math back in the day. Here's what I know. The mathematical continuum is taken to be the real number line. It has uncountably many points. On it are the integers, the positive and negative and zero whole numbe...

Re: Continuum

Without any end or beginning. The integers have no end and no beginning. They cannot possibly form a continuum. Do you understand this point? Even the rationals, which have no end and no beginning but do have a dense order, can not possibly form a continuum. You are talking about infinitude. I am s...

Re: Continuum

If a line is made of points then it is reasonable so say that line cannot be constructed from something which has size zero, point, unless the number of points are boundless. What does boundless mean? The number of integers is "boundless" in the sense of being infinite; but countably many points ca...

Re: Continuum

Any continuous thing is divisible to the point. It is continuous because the biggest integer does not exist. What does "divisible to the point" mean? If you divide a nonzero length in half you get a nonzero length, always. Never a zero-length point. Your claim appears false on its face without furt...

Re: High physics died

How can we (Einstein) claim that matter / antimatter or antimatter / antimatter are (automatically) gravitationally attracted and build on it whole physics? It was Newton who had the profound insight that every mass in the universe attracts ever other mass. Einstein merely provided a more refined m...

In other words let's take for granted that mobile devices will get smaller and more clever. In fact just today Apple released their new computer glasses and everyo...
